As a longtime blogger and traveler, I often find myself writing about my travels. In my opinion, this is a fantastic way to make money. From Texas to Paris to the Great Down Under, I would love to go. There are many beautiful locations in the world and I want to get out there and experience each first hand. Do you consider yourself to be a world traveller? Perhaps you’d like to travel the world, but don’t have the money. Well, maybe you should thinking about trying to start a blog business. By starting a internet blogging business, you’ll be able to write about your hobby, while making money. What could possibly be better?
As someone who wishes to travel the globe, a blog could very well be the best business to start. This specific business venture has been test and proven by some very profitable businessmen and women. Travel websites have made a killing from this very endeavor. Now it is your turn to start a business and do the very same thing.
This sounds all fair and well, but how do I go about creating a business using a blog? Since you’ve seen many parts of the world, you have information that others will find interesting and valuable. Using this information to start a blog is a wonderful way to make money. Sign up for a free blog and begin writing blog posts about your experiences traveling around the world. Be sure to take plenty of pictures of your travels, as these too can be included in your blog posts. I love reading the adventures of a world traveller and others do too.
With the blog already started, you’re well on your way. With hundreds or even thousands of people visiting your blog each day, you already have a head start. Now it is time to transform that traffic into cash! This is usually referred to as monetizing your blog. This may sound like a foreign word right now, but rest assured it isn’t too difficult.
You can monetize a blog in a number of different ways, including pay per click advertisements and affiliate programing. First, we’ll take a look at pay per click, or PPC, opportunities. It is basically as simple as it sounds. Sign up for a PPC program and generate a customized link or banner. Once you have done this, you’ll need to install the link or banner on your blog and you’re finished. Simple as that. Now, every time someone visits your website, there is a possibility that they’ll turn into revenue. One someone clicks the link or banner, you’ll receive a small amount of money. This money adds up quickly with excessive clicks.
Affiliate programs are a little different and can be more difficult. However, the revenue generate can be significantly more. You’ll need to promote a specific product or service through your blog. Once you convince someone to make the purchase, they’ll click to link through your blog and make their purchase. With each purchase you help make, you’ll earn a percentage of the sell!
